Magical Day - Card in a Box


Gosh - this is a trip down memory lane.  It was trending back in 2014 when the lovely Monica Gale, a UK Demonstrator shared it and today's is an updated version using the gorgeous Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Papers and other stuff from the Myths & Magic Suite on pages 36 & 37 of the 2018  Spring/Summer Catalogue.  

For the battlements, I used a retired punch - do you remember the spiral punch?  There are some items which I'll never part with and this is one of them!





As promised here is the cutting guide for your card stock:

Imperial measurements:

1 x A4 Sheet
Basic Grey, long side on top score @ 2 ¾”, 5 ½”, 8 ¼”, 11”.  Rotate 90o anti-clockwise and score @ 2 ¾” on short side.  Slide cardstock to the left of trimmer and align with 5 ¾” mark and cut.   Set aside larger piece. 

3 x ¾” x 4 ¼”
Use leftover piece from A4 to create 3 bridges.  With narrower score line on your left, align 2nd scoreline on ¾” mark to the right of your cutting groove on a Stampin’ Up! trimmer and cut.   Then measure ¾” on short side and make your second cut to yield 3 bridging pieces each measuring ¾” x 4 ¼”

Did you know that if you click on the pictures below it will take you directly to the item in my online store which will give you more detail on the product?  You can place an order too, if you wish and it would be very much appreciated and take advantage of Sale-A-Bration!  Please note that the spiral punch has been retired.   If you haven't got one, then you can create your battlements by cutting by hand.
